Mediation & Arbitration
Litigation can be expensive and stressful and the courts can also usually only award compensation or grant an injunction. However, in many cases the parties to the dispute want an explanation for what happened, or receive an apology.
Mediation with an independent, impartial third party can often help both parties settle their differences by minimising costs and, if settled at an early stage, can prevent the dispute worsening. We have experience of settling disputes by mediation.
Arbitration is a form of alternative dispute resolution commonly used in commercial disputes. It is similar to court proceedings, but without the same formality. We can advise if this may be suitable for you.
